I have searched for the perfect tres leches recipe, and I can now end my search! This recipe hit it right on. Some tips I would offer to 'first-timers' is:
When you fold in the egg whites, be very careful not to over-mix them in. If you must choose, under-mix them in, but overt mixing will result in flat-custard like cake-yuck! Secondly, This cake tastes better if you let it sit for a day or two in the fridge (the perfect make ahead dessert!) Only don't frost it until the day you serve it. The receipe said to trow out the remaining milk, but I like mine extra moist, so I saved it and added it on serving day, and the cake soaked it right up. Lastly, whip up the remaining cream with about 1/4 c sugar and 1 tsp vanilla for the frosting. Yum! Recipe says garnish with cherries, but I prefer lots and lots of fresh fruit and berries. Enjoy!
